A Redflex camera spotted the violation by Manglik, then sent a video to an employee in Arizona who trained for a week to recognize violations. The employee checked municipal laws and approved the initial violation, and the video was then passed to another Redflex worker, who checked the vehicle against a motor-vehicle database to see if the car and tags match.
A third employee approved the final evaluation and alerted an officer in Clive, who made the ticket official. Clive police approve more than 90 percent of violations passed on by Redflex, excluding obvious mistakes such as ambulances and funeral processions. Redflex encourages cities to use signs and provides them to its customers. Gary Walker said.

A story with a bitter-sweet ending. May 23, Chris rated it really liked it. Excellent work! While I loved each of the well written stories in this book, I was left wanting. Except for The Cross of Columba, all of these stories come across as the beginnings of novels. They are enjoyable, but feel incomplete.
